Weekly Update — Confirmation Sunday

Dear Members and Friends of Emmanuel Church,

It is almost Pentecost on God’s hill!

Pentecost is the festival which celebrates God sending the Holy Spirit onto the disciples in Jerusalem.  It is through the Spirit that God continues to be present with us in our everyday world.

Symbols for Pentecost include: fire, flame, the color red, a dove, or hand descending from heaven.

Pentecost is also the traditional time in the church year for Confirmation and Communion.  In 2019, three young women will dedicate their lives to living as disciples this Sunday: Katie Brian, Tressa Clark, and Elizabeth Hedden.  You are invited to incorporate the color red into your outfit for Sunday, as well.

After the service, you are invited to share in the celebration over in the Steele building with a cookout.  Hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided.  Bring a side-dish to pass.

    Our June Newsletter is now live over at the webpage.  You can head on over there to get an electronic copy or you can pick up one from the church office/during Sunday worship.

As our friend and one-time interim pastor, Richard Seigfried, says, “See you in church.”

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph
